I was born,
educated and teacher-trained in Wales and first employed to
teach history and politics at Olchfa School in Swansea from 1993
to 1999. From 1999-2007 I was Head of Humanities at the
International School of Toulouse and between 2007 and
2009 I was Academic Director at the British International School
of Bratislava, where in addition to history I also taught film.
From 2009 to 2016 I taught at the European School Brussels III where
most of this website was originally developed and until 2018 I
taught history, film and ICT at La Côte International School in
Switzerland. After a sabbatical year that enabled me to
help produce a series of new digital textbooks for
Kognity publisher, I am now back teaching history at Ecole
Moser in Nyon, Switzerland.
I am interested in the
application of ICT in the history classroom (especially digital
film) and I am fascinated by philosophical questions in history
teaching concerning epistemology and identity. Many of these
themes are covered in the film below produced by my junior media
club in June 2018.
